4 Days til Christmas Song ~ Louis Prima Recording of “What Will Santa Claus Say”

Louis Prima, “The King of Swing,” was a New Orleans born son of Sicilian immigrants. Primo’s career spanned five decades and he was a trumpeter, singer, songwriter, and actor. Prima was also the voice of the orangutan in Disney’s the Jungle Book, performing the song “I Wanna be Like You.”

I am curious to know if any GMG readers ever saw Louis Prima play during his long career.

    Not knowledgeable on Prima so thanks for sharing him, love the music, he and Armstrong would have been the music of parents generation I think.

    Not in person but watched him on the BW- TV – I have his music at the house (The wildest 1956) and most of the hits he sung with Keely Smith she started with him when she was 17… Thanks :-)

    I never saw him in person but hear him on Jazz24 (an internet radio station).
